What we have here is a mock up of the animation I need to create.
The final will be an animation that show hat muscle is being used at different points of of pedal cycle.
I need is a pedal that rotates around a circle.
That seems easy enough.
But when I parent the pedal to the crank arm, the pedal rotates as the crank arm spins.
Is there an easy way to have the pedal rotate with the crank arm and not rotate the pedal on its axis?
I need the legs to change color depending on the degree or clock position of the pedal.
For example, when the pedal is at the 2 o’clock position the lower leg would turn red.
Is there a way to do this in Blender?
Dummy pedal rig attached.
Thanks in advance guys.
